Olly Murs to follow in the footsteps of Elton John in the North-east

Essex heartthrob, Olly Murs will be wowing fans of the North-east of Scotland this July when he returns to Aberdeen for a special gig that has only ever been seen once before in the city.

The spectacular concert will be staged at a specially constructed 16,000 capacity outdoor arena on the grounds of the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) on Friday 21st July. This will be the second time that the venue has constructed the outdoor arena, following on from Elton John’s tour date in June 2015.

The team at AECC will be creating the outdoors arena from scratch, on the south side of the complex, which will boast a seated and standing arena for fans as well as a full range of concert facilities at the show including internal and external bars, catering and restrooms. The temporary structure will more than triple the GE Oil & Gas Arena seated/standing capacity for the Olly Murs gig.

Celebrating another incredible year, Olly Murs said “I am thrilled to play outdoors at the Exhibition and Conference Centre in Aberdeen. Scottish audiences are always so brilliant to play for, they are so much fun!”

2017 is shaping up to be quite the year at the GE Oil & Gas Arena with so many big names already confirmed to perform including funny man Russell Howard, Iron Maiden and Aberdeen’s very own Emeli Sandé.
